I don't know if this is of interest to anybody, but three bridges upstream from the famous Ironbridge (Telford, Shropshire) there's a structure that's been condemned. It's an overdeck truss bridge, built in 1932 to serve the Ironbridge A power station. (Google Earth describes the power station as "mostly demolished", and the current one is Ironbridge B.)

Not even foot traffic is permitted across the bridge anymore... but it stood all winter with lots of snow and ice on it, and boats move beneath it every day, so I doubt it's in a desperate state yet. I was stuck on a boat at the time, so I didn't get a chance to explore. Just a couple of hurried photos from the river. Any interest?

Is not the bridge private access to the power station?

What do the signs say? It just looks closed of to me rather than dangerous.

I was there last year! The bridge has a max weight limit of 20 tons. It closed because of the heavier trucks that now use the power station. Entry to the power station is now via a different access route further along the road:thumb

Any particular ones do you recommend? What about ideal footwear for this situation and clothing?
Whatever you're comfortable in, there's no uniform. Darker colours are generally good if you're planning to sneak about.

I just got two pairs of gardening gloves off ebay for £2.50 delivered.
